Billett also heads to BC

On Monday, goaltender Brian Billett (Kennebunk, Me) verbally committed to Boston College the defending National Champions for the fall of 2010.

“Boston College is known for their tradition of excellence in both academics and athletics, and I felt that I wanted to be a part of it. When I visited, I knew that this was where I wanted to spend four crucial years of my life,” said Brian Billet in the press release on the Eastern Junior Hockey League’s website.

“He has a few things we need to work on before he enters Boston College, but he is one of the hardest working players I have seen and truly cares about his development. I look forward to working with him during the next year and a half and preparing him for Hockey East,” said New Hampshire Junior Monarchs Head Coach Sean Tramblay.

Billett started the year with the Junior B squad where he was 3-0-2 with a 1.96 goals against average and a .930 save percentage. He also recorded two shutouts.

With the EJHL team, he’s 9-2 with a 2.37 goals against average and a .923 save percentage. He’s third in the league in both categories.

This past summer he participated at the National Select 16’s where the best 16-year-olds in the country descended to Rochester, New York. He led the Select 16’s with a 1.86 goals against and a .929 save percentage. The Select 16’s had both goaltenders that are on the National Team Development Program’s Under-17 team this season.

Last season he spent the year at North Yarmouth Academy as a sophomore and spent his freshman year at Brunswick High School.

He joins fellow teammate and Mainer, Brian Dumoulin, who’s also verbally committed to Boston College. Dumoulin will join the Eagles next season.
